AC Installation St. Augustine | Uneven Cooling in a Space or Home

AC Installation St. Augustine | Once the summer weather has set in, a cool home is one of the most anticipated parts of almost everyone’s day. The idea of going home to a cool house and escaping the hot weather is one that almost everyone has during the hottest days of the year.

What happens when certain areas of the home aren’t as cool as others? A central air conditioner should cool the home evenly throughout. If your home has hot spots, it is likely that some spaces are much cooler than others. Air conditioning service techs can identify the problem and offer a solution to cool the home in its entirety.

 

Here are a few reasons your AC unit may not be cooling the home or space evenly as it should.

Leaking Ducts

Ductwork is utilized with some systems to navigate air throughout the home. If hot spots have become an issue, the ductwork in that area may have a leak. Air conditioning service technicians can conduct tests on the ducts and seal them if necessary. This is not a DIY project and should not be done by anyone other than a professional.

 

Air Conditioning Size

If the AC unit is not the right size for the home, it can be difficult to cool the home evenly. Air conditioning service technicians should ensure that the system is the sized correctly. If the unit is not the proper size, a replacement will be the only answer to the problem. This is another issue that should be addressed immediately.

Insulation

Faulty insulation can prevent the home from cooling properly. Just as insulation works to keep the cold out, it also works to keep the heat out during the summer heat. If insulation is worn or has degraded, it could prevent the home from cooling throughout and cause hot spots in the home. To set an appointment with Glacier Heating and Air, please call a qualified Customer Service Representative today at 904-615-6881.
